Jetpack VideoPress

Jetpack VideoPress allows you to upload videos from your computer to be hosted on, rather than on your host’s servers. This allows your videos to be loaded more quickly on your website.


Jetpack VideoPress is available to anyone with a Jetpack Complete, or VideoPress plan and an active Jetpack connection.

If your videos are showing as private, you may need to reconnect Jetpack.

How do I use Jetpack VideoPress?

Jetpack VideoPress can be used by enabling VideoPress in the Jetpack plugin settings. To get started, follow these steps: 

  1. Install the Jetpack Plugin
  2. Go to Jetpack → Settings → Performance.
  3. In the media section at the bottom of the page, turn on the Enable VideoPress switch.

You also may notice there is a secondary setting called Video Privacy. Here you are able to toggle privacy settings to restrict video views to site members or toggle this setting off to make videos public. The selected setting here will be considered your Site Default when uploading new videos to your site.

You’re now ready to start uploading your videos. You can learn more about adding videos to Jetpack VideoPress from our Uploading a Video to Jetpack VideoPress article.

Jetpack VideoPress cannot be used on sites in Staging Mode.
